Advice No. 5504
(U 904 G)
Public Utilities Commission of the State of California
Subject: August 2019 Buy-Back Rates
Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) hereby submits revisions to its tariff
schedules, applicable throughout its service territory, as shown on Attachment A.
Purpose
This routine monthly submittal updates the Buy-Back Rates in Schedule No. G-IMB for
August 2019.
Background
As authorized in Schedule No. G-IMB - Transportation Imbalance Service, the Buy-Back
Rates are established effective the last day of each month.
The Buy-Back Rates will be the lower of 1) the lowest incremental cost of gas
purchased by the Utility during the month the imbalance was incurred; or 2) 50% of the
applicable Adjusted Core Procurement Charge, G-CPA, set forth in Schedule No. G-CP,
during the month such excess imbalance was incurred.
Information
During the month of August, 50% of the Adjusted Core Procurement Charge, G-CPA,
is lower than the lowest incremental cost of gas. Therefore, the Buy-Back Rates for
August 2019 are being revised accordingly. The work paper showing details of the
calculation of these rates is incorporated herein as Attachment B.
